This place promised so much but failed to deliver on every level. We were here for Sunday Lunch and on first impressions it looked like a winner table looked lovely, beautiful setting, smart staff. That was about the sum of the positives, the head waitress was surly and it was to much trouble to alter the seating plan and it... More

My wife and I were entertained at Gilbert's restaurant by some friend's for my birthday. The restaurant is excellent in all respects. Very good traditional food, plenty of choice and excellent service. It is expensive but worth it. There were several "freebies" between courses too.

My wife and I went to Gilbert's for lunch on Easter Sunday. We know the place well - it is located in William Gilbert's house (the Gilbert of Gilbert and Sullivan), not far from where we live. The atmosphere of the place is excellent: views of the gardens, relaxed, quiet ambience, a splendid building. The Easter menu was good, with... More

Stayed at the hotel and booked a dinner bed breakfast package whilst on business in Harrow.. Ate on a very quiet Monday evening with only a handful of diners, we received £22 credit to use against the a la carte menu. I tried the trio of salmon, the chicken linguine and the creme brulee. Each course was ok but not... More
